You've got some really intriguing ideas there! I'm particularly privy to the idea of the ancients being better than how we are now, and your idea would be an excellent way to represent that. It really shows how far the Cybertronian race has fallen, and how hard it would be for them to go back to living lives of peace. There's even some precedent in other TF media, with say, the Thirteen Primes looking vastly different (and vastly more stylistic) than the modern Autobots and Decepticons. All in all, I wouldn't mind seeing something like this implemented!
